Sometimes you leave your house to go on vacation. And you gotta take some of your stuff with you.
Gotta take about two big suitcases full of stuff, when you go on vacation. You gotta take a smaller version of your house. It's the second version of your stuff. And you're gonna fly all the way to Honolulu.. .You get down to the hotel room in Honolulu and you open up your suitcase and you put away all your stuff. "Here's a place here, put a little bit of stuff there, put some stuff here, put some stuff--you put your stuff there, I'll put some stuff--here's another place for stuff, look at this, I'll put some stuff here..." And even though you're far away from home, you start to get used to it, you start to feel okay, because after all, you do have some of your stuff with you.
I guess that's how I am when I leave for class every year. I mean packing my stuff usually takes me a week and I still manage to forget something. Elizabeth tried to keep the supply list brief - but I still needed more stuff - 'cause like George it gives me a sense of home. When I'm comfortable, I can create better.
At least that's how I justify this mountain of sewing supplies I'm taking for my 5 day class.
I don't want to have to admit - that like Linus - I need my stuff as my security blanket.
Ohh and yes I did manage to work a bit on the fall piece and work out the stem problem. But that will just have to wait till I get home - when I can unpack all my stuff.
So what have you been up to creatively??
